    Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

    Would you listen to Dragons of Autumn Twilight again? Why?

    Yes I would, The store never gets old, it is very well written, it hooks you from the Beginning
    to the end


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like all the characters its hard to pick just one but if I had to pick just one it would be flint fire forge. He is funny and the father figure to all the companions. he is one half of the catalyst that holds the group together.


    Which character – as performed by Ax Norman – was your favorite?

    Honestly Ax Norman has a good voice, he just does not give each character a personality as Peter Mcnickle did in the random house audio book, but all in all he did an good job but I think he did Tanis Half elven the best.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many moments that move you, the reunion of the companions, and the section at the boat I can't really say exactly which parts it would give it away.


    Any additional comments?

    Weis and Hickman are in my Opinion, the Best writing team out there, there stiles are seamless, you really can't tell when one takes off and other starts. and they hold in the story with out any holes that make you stop and go What the???!? and they keep that momentum going in the next two books as well if you like SciFi Fantasy you have to get this book. It is well worth the time to listen and you will be hooked to the Dragonlance world.

    Story
    Would you listen to Vorpal Blade again? Why?

    Yes I would the story continued on from Into the looking glass, not just in story but the funny scenes with Bill weaver and Miller. and the added character of Two gun just seems to fit, an he story was good it made you think did and try to figure out did they find the bad guys or some new bad guys.


    What other book might you compare Vorpal Blade to and why?

    I would compare it to a Hymn before Battle, Only because its 1. a space story, and 2. because it has its funny moments as did A hymn before battle.


    Have you listened to any of L. J. Ganser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have to admit that at first I didn't care for L.J. Ganser I was so used to Marc Vietor reading for John Ringo's books, but now that I have read into the Looking glass and Vorpal Blade it seems fitting that a different voice do the different saga Ganser does a good Job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the banter between Two gun and the other Space Marines and between Bill Weaver and Chief Miller I always seem to laugh at them


    Any additional comments?

    again John Ringo hits a home run and it seem that the character is Ringo's Co- author Travis Taylor I seen a video of him and as soon as I heard him speak I said out laud that has to be were Bill Weaver comes from.

    I highly recommend reading both into the Looking Glass an Vorpal Blade if you Like military space stories you will not be disappointed in This book or this Saga

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book, not only to a friend but to all that like Military Sci Fi the story is captivating and funny more so with me because I Live near most of the places mentioned in Florida. so as you can see it was strange reading about the places you see every day taken out in a blast But the story was still riveting could not put is down when I read it and could not stop listening to it as well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Into the Looking Glass?

    listening to my home town being destroyed


    What about L. J. Ganser’s performance did you like?

    once you get used to him not being Mark Vietor he does ok


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot, Cry no but again it was strange. Listening to places I see every day being destroyed really grips you in a strange way.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very gripping story, Dr. Weaver is a riot I laugh hard with some of the things he said, it helps keep the story captivating.

    In this second volume of the Gorean Series, Tarl Cabot finds himself transported back to Counter-Earth from the sedate life he has known as a history professor on Earth. Tarl finds that his name on Gor has been tainted, his city defiled, and all those he loves have been made into outcasts. He is no longer in the position of a proud warrior, but an outlaw for whom the simplest answers must come at a high price. He wonders why the Priest Kings have called him back to Gor, and whether it is only to render him powerless.

    exciting, captivating, Thrilling

    when Tarl cabot was about to die by tarn only to find it was his old tarn from tarnsmen of Gor


    What does Ralph Lister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he makes the book come alive


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when the men started to work together and won their fredom from the mine


    Any additional comments?

    Even though the book talks about a form of slavery and one could go so far as to say BDSM in some form only because it speaks of woman in slave Bracelets and collars. but over all it is not a smut book it is tastefully written and it holds the reader from start to finish.
